Hey everyone, thanks for taking the time to respond. I forgot to mention that I live in northeast Alabama and the humidity here is outrageous, especially in August and September. Things do get better in October but now it is rough. I need to get a moisture meter so I can check the MC but the guy at the lumber yard says it is probably around 15% now. I can imagine if I dry it in a kiln now it will suck up the moisture when it comes out. If I could find a climate-controlled storage unit for $75 a month it would be great. This amount of wood, though, is going to take a 10×30 room and they go for $100-125 a month here. It may just be best to dry it as i need it.
